Whoever you are at this moment, you have a choice. You can believe menopause signals the end or you can make a few small changes to finally become the person you always thought you could be. In her groundbreaking book, Jill Shaw Ruddock offers answers to the questions women think and care about at this time of their life. 'The change' is not just physical but cerebral as well. Although a woman can no longer create life, this is the time when she can give birth to herself. Drawing on her extensive experience, research and interviews, Jill Shaw Ruddock scrutinises what could be holding you back and provides practical, hands-on advice on how to harness the new-found focus that menopause brings. From money to the mind, dating to divorce, exercise to eating and separation to self-expression, Ruddock's inspiring book sets out a game plan to prepare and guide you to make the second half of your life the best half.
